Card Interfaces
2.1
I/O Interfaces
Rev 1.0
Each mezzanine card includes the following interfaces:
• PCI Express (PCIe)
• I2C-compatible connector (for debug)
Figure 5: 0J05YT/0K6V3V Card
2.1.1 InfiniBand Interface
The ConnectX®-3 mezzanine cards are compliant with the InfiniBand Architecture Specification,
Release 1.2.1. It has two compliant InfiniBand ports with four Tx/Rx pairs of SerDes.

Card Interfaces
2.1.2 PCI Express Interface
The ConnectX®-3 mezzanine cards support PCI Express 3.0 (1.1 and 2.0 compatible) . The device
can be either a master initiating the PCI Express bus operations or a slave responding to PCI bus
operations.
2.1.3 I2C-compatible Interface
A three-pin header on the mezzanine cards is provided as the I2C-compatible interface.
Figure 6: I2C Connector
2.2
Power
All adapter cards receive 12V and 3.3V power from the PCI Express connector. All other required
power voltages are generated by on-board switch mode regulators. See
Appendix A.2,“Specifications,” on page 30.
2.3
Memory
The mezzanine cards support multiple memory devices through the PCI Express, SPI (Flash), and
I2C-compatible interfaces.
2.3.1 System Memory
The mezzanine cards utilize the PCI Express interface to store and access fabric connection information on the system memory.
2.3.2 SPI
The mezzanine cards include one SPI Flash device accessible via the Flash interface of the ConnectX®-3 device.

Updating Mezzanine Card Firmware
Each card is shipped with the latest version of qualified firmware at the time of manufacturing.
Firmware is updated occasionally, and the most recent firmware can be obtained from:
http://www.mellanox.com => Support => Download Firmware. Check that the firmware on your
card is the latest found on the Mellanox site, if not update to the latest version found on the Mellanox web site.
Firmware can be updated on the stand alone single card using the flint tool of the Mellanox Firmware Tools (MFT) package. This package is available for download, along with its user manual,
from the Mellanox Firmware Tools page. See http://www.mellanox.com => Support => Download
Firmware Tools.
A firmware binaries table lists a binary file per mezzanine card. The file name of each such binary
is composed by combining the firmware name, the firmware release version, and the card part
